Volunteering for Cumberland Lodge is an experience like no other. As a charity that embraces ‘difficult conversations’ and ‘disagreeing well’, we bring together leaders, influencers, students and young people, to facilitate candid conversations and an open exchange of views. This extraordinary mission takes place inside a 17th-century former royal residence in Windsor Great Park, full of history and fascinating stories.
Cumberland Lodge hosts a diverse and exciting programme of events throughout the year. Whether you are supporting a thought-provoking ‘Cumberland Conversation’, or warmly welcoming members of the public on one of our open days, volunteering with Cumberland Lodge promises to be highly rewarding.
What makes Cumberland Lodge so special? It is more than the warm welcome and excellent hospitality we provide, and the time and space we offer for deep thinking and reflection.
We actively embrace 'difficult conversations' and we bring an intergenerational, multi-sector and ethical dimension to all aspects of our work. In all of our work, we aim to model the idea of 'disagreeing well'.
We convene leaders and influencers, students, practitioners and young people, to facilitate candid conversations, involving the open exchange of views and perspectives, and mutual learning.
This helps us to:
Inspire and connect leaders and people of influence to build networks across sectors and academic disciplines, and to explore practical opportunities for promoting positive social change
Support and equip students and young people with the skills and motivation to promote more peaceful, open and inclusive societies, as future leaders and change-makers in their communities
You can find out more about some of the practical methods we use to inspire creative thinking and the exchange of views at our roundtable conferences here.
